Topics covered in this report include:
- Estate Tax Exclusion
- Federal Gift Tax
- Qualified Personal Residence Trusts
Mr. Kraft assists clients primarily in the areas of estate planning and administration, Medicaid planning, federal and state taxation, real estate and corporate law, bringing the added perspective of an accounting background to his work.
